Future Country Music Hall of Famer, Clint Black, returns to Harris Center for the Arts, 10 College Parkway in Folsom, with an intimate trio setting in an all-new show on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 8 p.m.; Friday, Feb. 28 at 8 p.m.; and Saturday, March 1 at 8 p.m.
His debut recording, “Killin’ Time,” boasted five Number 1 hits — unprecedented from a debut in any genre — and he has since gone on to sell more than 20 million albums worldwide.
Prolific singer-songwriter Black has long been heralded as one of country music’s brightest stars. To date, Black has written, recorded and released more than 100 songs, a benchmark in any artist’s career.
An astounding one-third of these songs eligible for major single release also achieved hit-song status at country radio. The 1989 debut of his critically acclaimed fan favorite, the Triple Platinum “Killin’ Time,” marked a shift in the industry with a return to the more traditional sounds of the genre. CMT lists this album as one of the 100 Greatest Albums in Country Music.
While it’s well-known that Black is an accomplished singer and guitarist, people may be surprised to learn that he is also proficient on drums and harmonica.
In addition to a heavy touring schedule, Black is currently developing a Broadway production based on the life of his friend Roy Rogers.
Black branched out even further with an appearance on Donald Trump’s hit reality series “Celebrity Apprentice.” As a result of the friendship on the show between Black and fellow contestant and Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton, the teammates are working to secure a total of $1 million dollars in matching fund donations for the International Rett Syndrome Foundation.
